I installed The Sims: Complete Collection on my computer and every time I try to save it says an error has occurred. I have Vista and it seems that has something to do with it. What do I need to do?

I had 2 uninstall The Sims and Makin Magic and now it won't reinstall.


Hmmm, it seems I too had this problem. If I remeber correctly you have to make sure there is no sims content on your hard drive. If you go to START>MY COMPUTER> PROGRAM FILES>MAXIS or EA. delete that file and try to install the game again.
Be sure to save any custom content to a data cd-r before deleting all the files from your hard drive or you will lose them forever. But the idea is to remove ALL sims files from your computer then you should be able to install the game again.

Why cant i save my sims complete collection i have windows vista and it says an error has occured i dont get it wat should i do


I had this problem too. In vista you have to choose to run the sims in xp or an earlier mode. I ran mine in windows ME mode. you also have to slelect "run this program as administrator". then you should be able to save your game.

Once ive visited an area once, i cant revisit it. the game freezes on the loading screen with the taxi. why?


What I remember from The Sims you can't save when you're at a public land, try to reset the game and then you'll be able to play at your own land. Otherwise you can paste your copied save-files if you've did a backup before. If not, check in your installation map so no files are missed.

The sims complete collection won't save with vista


One of the biggest problems is that you are running it on Vista. The Sims Complete Collection was not developed with Vista in mind so there will be compatibility issues. One thing that you can try to fix this is right click it and click run as administrator. The reason why i say to do this is because one of the big things that vista tried to stop was viruses destroying your operating system by editing files without permission. By running as administrator, you override these rules. Programs cannot start themselves as administrator. This should clear any problems right up.

Sims complete collection won't run on my windows vista


Hello.. The Sims collection does have some compatability issues with vista but EA has worked on it and actually it should run fine.May be any running process is conflicting with the game or you may have to update your Display drivers.
Also try using the compatability mode.Just right click on the game *.exe and select properties.then select the compatability tab and check the box "run in compatability with Win Xp[sp2]".
